Have you ever thought that you’d like to try your hand at homebrewing but don’t know where to start? You could be like me and wait for someone to give you a Mr. Beer American Light starter set for Christmas. If you follow all of the instructions in a few short weeks you too can have a couple of gallons of mediocre but seriously sessionable light beer.
Fortunately there is a better way. Worthington Library (also known as Northwest Library, 2280 Hard Road) is going to be hosting a workshop on how to brew your own beer. The event will take place this coming Saturday, October 25 from 2:00-3:30 pm, and will be led by Trevor Williams from Hoof Hearted Brewing. Trevor will be showing new and not-so-new brewers how to start making their own homebrews. Attendees will learn about what equipment they need, what ingredients will get them started, and where to purchase supplies. He will also be providing an IPA recipe, and will have a list of additional resources on hand as well! The workshop is free of charge and no registration is required.
I have to say when it comes to beer Columbus is a pretty awesome city—homebrewing workshops at the library, hops growing in the parks, and free beer on Columbus Day (OK, two out of three ain’t bad). Don’t miss your chance to take advantage of this great event.
P.S. – If anyone would like a bottle or two of Pat’s Pints Session Pils send me a message and a drop can be arranged.
